Baileys White Chocolate Walnut Ice Cream

Delicious, rich, and boozy Baileys White Chocolate Walnut Ice Cream is a perfect way beat the heat!

This post was originally published in October 2015. I have uploaded new photos while the main text and recipe remain unchanged. 

I’m dedicating this recipe to my lovely food buddy Cheyanne who is allergic to dark chocolate but luckily isn’t allergic to Baileys.

Or does that sound a bit ambiguous?

Nope, I’m not insinuating that Chey has got a thing with Baileys.

Oh boy, never mind!

I wasn’t planning to post this Baileys White Chocolate Walnut Ice Cream recipe for a few weeks because, as you may know, I’m suffering from the apple and pumpkin flavors. But there’s a great news – having had a short break from blogging Chey has finally come back to us. Time to celebrate. With a huge glass of Bailey’s scoop of ice cream.

The truth is that while making this ice cream (In August!) I clearly realized that this could be a perfect dessert for Chey.

  • Ice cream – check
  • Doesn’t have dark chocolate – check
  • Has white chocolate – check
  • Has nuts – check
  • Has Baileys – check, check, check…

I mean who would ever reject some Baileys White Chocolate Walnut Ice Cream, eh?

Believe me, Baileys makes the difference.

I know that. You know that. I do believe, Chey knows that.

Besides, there’s nothing bad if a person has a passion. Baileys passion.

Naughty boy.

I’d better stop saying that or Santa won’t bring me presents.

Originally, I was going to add just a few spoons of the Baileys because alcohol prevents ice cream from being firm. Then I decided to add more because why not? Plus, Chey won’t understand that underuse of the alcohol.

Oh, shut up, Ben.

Indeed, if you don’t have an ice cream maker, this ice cream is a great option for you freezer because the alcohol prevents this ice cream from being icy.

In a nutshell, this Baileys White Chocolate Walnut Ice Cream is one of the most sophisticated versions I’ve ever tried. Soft and delicate, with quite a distinctive Baileys flavor and loads of white chocolate and walnuts. Well, could that ever sound better?

And Baileys. Yes, Baileys.

Hello, Chey!

    OMG, this combo sounds so freakin’ good! I actually have some vegan baileys and white chocolate at home right now, I feel like it’s a MUST recipe and I have to try to veganize it somehow ;)

    As a huge fan of Baileys you got me hooked instantly on seeing this Baileys White Chocolate Walnut Ice Cream, Ben! I missed it in 2015 so I’m glad you’ve re-posted it. In fact this looks and sounds so delicious that I’m pinning it to my Christmas recipes Pinterest Board. I’m forever making cheesecakes (as you know) and I think my folks my love this as a change! Thanks!

    Those cones look delicious! In my opinion, all ice cream should be soft. I like to let mine sit out until it’s on the verge of melting. Now I realize that I should simply put alcohol in all my ice cream! Problem solved!

    Someone dropped their ice cream cone in that one photo, Ben! What a travesty. And instead of immediately picking it back up for them, you decided to stop and take a picture of it. How rude. Haha…totally kidding! This post is amazing, my friend. From the photos to the story about Chey to the recipe itself. You win the prize! (The prize is more lavender…obviously.)
